The Center for Men’s Health Equity leads state, regional, national and global research, policy, and practice to pursue men’s health equity, well-being, and social justice.
The Center for Men’s Health Equity was established in the Summer of 2021 in the Racial Justice Institute at Georgetown University. The Center for Men’s Health Equity conducts research that helps men live healthier lives. While there is growing interest in how social and cultural factors shape men’s health, few researchers have comprehensively studied these influences. The Center for Men’s Health Equity works to fill this gap. We strive to gain a greater understanding of these factors by building on our previous research and the research of others.
- how ideals of manhood can be used to motivate men to engage in healthier behavior;
- how gendered racism, distrust and mistrust affect health;
- the role of stress and coping in men’s health; and
- how an intersectional lens can be used to inform men’s health interventions.
